"My name is Javier. I am the Founder of LARS BURO NY, a research, design, and visualization studio based in NYC. I am eager to re-enter the academic world and share my experience and knowledge with architecture and design students. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in my Bachelor of Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico, afterwards completing a Masters of Science in Advanced Architectural Design with recognition at Columbia University's GSAPP. For the past couple of years, I have been tutoring and counseling architecture students in everything from studio and thesis projects, to research papers, to design software basics and techniques. I take joy and pride in helping students overcome the many obstacles inherent to such demanding careers, making it easier for them to communicate and develop outstanding ideas. I have seen first hand, time and time again, how creative disciplines thrive on a culture of feedback, on testing ideas among peers, on effective critique and consulting, and the clarity brought by discussing and debating the intentions and methods of a project. But just as importantly, I too have experienced the same challenges and struggles that design students face at one point in their academic careers, and have always benefited from a helping hand and an outside eye. This is why I am committed to sharing these experiences and perspectives with those who want to push the boundaries of their projects, or those who just wish to expand their skill set.

I am fluent in Spanish and English, with excellent verbal and written communication skills, so bilingual students who struggle with communicating and redacting ideas are also welcome. Tutoring schedules can be arranged on a case by case basis.

I am proficient in the following design software:

AutoCAD, Sketchup, Rhino, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions and arrange what would be best for your specific needs!" less...
